Elliott goes back to back at IGA Senior Match Play
Gene Elliott never played the 15th hole at Fort Dodge Country Club during this year’s IGA Senior Match Play.
“That was the key for me,” Elliott said jokingly.
In the final match, against Tom Norton, Elliott found himself in unfamiliar territory, 2 down through four holes. Elliott would win the fifth hole with a par and then would rattle off four straight birdies on #7-10 to take a commanding 3 up lead. Elliott would add two more birdies, six total in an eight-hole stretch, to close out Norton 5&4.
The win marks the second year in a row that Elliott has won this event and his third IGA Senior Match Play title overall.
